But you emphasized just my point: If the derived code author wants to distribute it, the original code author eventually can stop him -- via a tort.
Actually, you're completely disregarding my correction and changing the subject: You were saying that the author of the derivative work "has no option" but to distribute it under the upstream work's terms. My point was that this is absolutely false -- and is a very common error.
